Seismic Shock: The Video.

with 5 comments

Stanley Kubrick’s marvellous film Spartacus was the inspiration behind the “I am Seismic Shock” campaign

This web Web phenomena, courtesy of the Streisand effect, was started to highlight how inappropriate it was for the British Police to visit a blogger and intimidate him into deleting one of his blogs.

Now there is a video.

Please take a copy and embed it in your blogs, as a reminder that the Police should not be involved in legitimate political criticism and discourse on the Internet.

Update 1: John Gray ably reminds us of the problems that he, Dave Osler and Alex Hilton had and still have to suffer from a vexatious claim.

Update 2: I forgot to add that I now have a YouTube channel.

I haven’t given any thought as to how best to use it, but if readers wish to contribute media, video or suggestions, please do.
